relationship, reminded me, president obama is left of center. president netanyahu is right of center. they have disagreements over policy and different political philosophies. the official said they're stuck with each other. they're both beginning new terms in office. they both have a huge focus on iran. they both have to worry about syria. they're both wondering as the world is about what happens with this air spring. this president would like to have the peace process resume. we talk about reviving the peace process. there is no process right now. it has collapsed. in any relationship, both sides insist in those four years despite all the disagreements and many more than you mention that the working relationship is always pretty good. when they have to do business, they put the personal stuff aside and they do business. but as you well know, wolf, you know this region as well as anyone, if you know each other and trust each other and have a personal bond, it is easier, when you get to the hard stuff. israelis talk about where is bill clinton? he came here four times as president. he was so de
's assessments in terms of where iran is right now. >> with almost everything president obama said about the islamic regime netanyahu agreed but then insisted the issue isn't just iran's final attainment of the bomb but rather weather before that happens the regime's technological advancement make a point of no return strip the western powersability ability to interview screen. >> i think there is a misunderstanding about time. to make a weapon you need two things. you need enriched uranium of a critical amount and then you need a weapon. iran gets to an immunity zone when they get through the enrichment process. in our view. >> in our view, he said. now, netanyahu also said israel can never cede its right to defend itself even to the greatest of friends. shep? >> shepard: james rosen live tonight. thanks. did you hear what president obama said to the israeli prime minister netanyahu today? you have to listen closely. here it comes. we also subtitled it for you. >> it's good to get away from congress. meantime here at home congress is trying to prevent a government showdown or shutdown i
. when they kept saying israel has the right t defend itself by itself. obama said it several times. and now who repeated it. netanyahu also said, and for the first time, this has been the most generous american president who has guaranteed that israel will be supplied wh early advanced weapons for ten years. i think the deal is that they have agreed that israel is going to make its own decision, by itself, go and do whatever it feels it has to do. the united states will on israel, but probably not help israel, and that is fine, but the problem is, none of them are thinking about what happens the day after that to the day after when they do retaliate in they feel that it has to do something, other the regime will survive. then israel may start that fight, but it does not finish it without us. lou: and netanyahu went so far as to say in addition to what k t has laid out before us, this president went farther than any previous president and talking about israel's right to defend itself faugh. >> i don't think so at all. lou: let me get to the second half and see if i can do any better
this is the president, this is president obama's first state visit to israel, right? and ben, as you mentioned, i want to get you in here one more time before we let you go. this is in many ways, the president is making up for what are may be seen as past transgressions, whether that's the cairo speech or the tense relationship that he and bibi have had in the oval office in their bilateral press conferences in the u.s. whether that's the relationship during the campaign when netanyahu basically was a romney support supporter. how convinced are you, standing there if tel aviv, that the relationship between these two leaders is going to be measurably different, which is to say better after this trip? i think a lot will depend on how iran is dealt with. i think in so far as president obama is seen taking a strong hand on iran, that gives him a little more legitimacy to push bibi on the palestinian issue. you have to remember that in benjamin netanyahu's first term, when he clashed with president clinton, he was blamed for causing the cries cries by israelis. and this time around, people have generally s
. alex, what's been the overall reaction to the visit? all right. >> reporter: good morning, john, good morning, diana. there have been two very distinct reactions. on the israeli side for starters i don't think it could have gone any better. many israelis viewed obama with some suspicion, but he's really won them over with his actions in recent days and particularly his speech here in jerusalem yesterday. here you can see the front page of one of the main israeli daily newspapers that says -- [ speaking a foreign language ] -- "you are not alone," one of the lines from his speech yesterday, which he won widespread praise for, and i think it's safe to say that in the coming days, you'll see a public opinion spike among israelis in the coming days and weeks. now, on the palestinian side, it was the polar opposite, deep frustration, deep disappointment, anger over the fact that president obama didn't call for a halt to israeli settlements in the west bank, which palestinians see as the main obstacle of peace. they don't feel that he did anything to advance the cause of palestinian stateho
the money. that's what they're doing. all right, nicole, thank you very much. the dow is up 19 in the early going. >> let's move on to washington, and president obama expected to sign a budget this week, and pretty good news for investors this is not what he wanted. automatic spending cuts stay in place. new spending on roads and bridges and universal pre-school. all that have off the table. new tax increases nowhere to be found and all of this coming out on a friday afternoon. long after everybody went home for the weekend, and hardly the market obama victory. and that you can about that more. and now this. and the third anniversary of the signing of obamacare in law and the senate overwhelmingly to repeal the tax on medical devices and higher insurance premiums next year. and "varney & company" says this law looks like it's unravelling. is that wishful thinking? in our next hour, one of the foremost authorities and critics of obamacare will answer that question, are we stuck with it? i think you're going to like her answer to this one coming up later. now, cyprus, they have seized private

of the family. this is something you always talk about. president obama would be the perfect person. >> time writing something like that right now as an op-ed piece because i think the family breakdown is critical, but don't belittle the argument. we have had a rash of massacres in this country. the american people see it. that is why we have finally said, was slick is something reasonable, background checks, closing the gun show loophole. why are we as an american people throwing up our arms. >> we have used up a great deal of time on this and will have to move on. lou: i have to say, no one is dismissing this issue. it is really important that we not be exploited by those who find it politically advantageous to try to strip us of our weapons, and our -- >> i agree with you. lou: if i may. if i may. if i may. the fact of the matter is that this is an issue that requires absolutely careful thought and study. there are people who would reflexively try to deny americans their second amendment rights. to me it is repugnant, and we have to pause and ask why are these people and these groups and,

where the u.s. has been largely silent on human rights issues. what should obama say while in jordan that the u.s. is committed to the value of human right and democracy? .. privately i think that very much of the focus should be on how can we work with jordan to improve their governance. there are few things that will have a more positive effect than enhancing this. the mix of public and private messages is something that should be part of this. >> let me say that i do not think that the premise of the question is fair. i do not think it is right to say that they have human rights abuses anywhere. in fact, i believe that the policy today should be the policy that we had in 2008. that we should be helping each one of these countries to find the right path for its political and economic reform. that is a very difficult path. one thing it demonstrates is that this is a difficult path. to find a political evolution leaves everybody in the country better off. one that might be superior to revolution. i think that when he goes to jordan -- for example, the jordanians have been a good ally

of the relationship between america and israel right now? >> reporter: there's no question, piers, obvious to the world, not just to these two leaders, they've had a frosty and unfriendly relationship. president obama is left of center, believes the prime minister netanyahu has said some things he finds insulting or didn't like. prime minister netanyahu right of center, supported romney in the last presidential election, has at times stopped at president obama, my language, doesn't get it. both of these guys just won elections. they are in the words of a top american official the other day, stuck with each other. and it's very crystal clear today, both of them have decided to try to turn a new page. are they going to be best friends, i think not. but are they going to be better friends? today it appeared they're going to at least try at that. and that makes a difference. when you're dealing with the iran nuclear crisis, the syria civil crisis, the question of whether you can get the palestinians and the israelis back on the table. if they like each other a bit more, it helps when things ge
